[audio]Yi-Tan Tech Community Call 210 - Hydroponic Farming - - Jerry Michalski, Pip Coburn

Gene Giacomelli, director of the Controlled Environment Agriculture Program at the University of Arizona, believes that hydroponics and Controlled Environments can help feed the world, save the world and create new worlds.

[audio]Yi-Tan Call 270: The Mondragon Cooperative (summary) - Jerry Michalski, Pip Coburn
One of the best examples of democracy blended with capitalism is the collection of enterprises in the Mondragon Cooperative, from the Basque region of Spain. The Cooperative dates back to 1956 and includes banks, educational institutions, factories and a major supermarket chain, but it's little known. Calvert co-founder Terry Mollner visited the Cooperative in 1979 and recently wrote a great description of it, calling it a herald of the coming Relationship Age -- a term I very much like...

[audio]Yi-Tan Tech Community Call 277 - Media Business Directions - - Jerry Michalski, Pip Coburn
Our media diets have changed some -- we still listen to tunes, watch movies and catch TV shows -- but how we procure those items has changed dramatically (think iTunes, BitTorrent, Netflix, old Napster, Pandora, Last.fm, Hulu, TiVo...), which in turn has affected every one of the media industries. Needless to say, the media businesses haven't found solid footing yet, but there are lessons we can derive today...

Despite the known dangers of centralized planning of new, idealized cities, South Korea has undertaken one that is to be a green, high-tech mecca, called New Songdo City.

Are you a Netflix customer, or do you download from BitTorrent? Did you watch the 3D version of Avatar, with the special glasses on? There's a battle on for our movie-viewing eyeballs. The most optimistic players hope that "enhanced" versions of movies will become the default, the way Starbucks turned the corner diner's $.25 coffee into a $3 experience.

Our primary and secondary educational systems are controversial, to put it mildly. John Holt, Grace Llewelyn, Paulo Freire, John Taylor Gatto and others have done a fabulous job pointing out how deficient the existing systems are, as well as lighting a path forward. One growing alternative is unschooling. Unlike the popular home-schooling stereotype of parents sharing "classroom" duties at home, unschooling is mostly student-led (and I wince using the word "student")...
